BFP update

I'm feeling so overwhelmed with all the positive feedback for you all! It's been a stressful time at our house getting use to the whole idea of another baby and having no idea when he/she would be showing up. I called my OB on Monday morning and they had me come in for blood work to test my HGc levels to give them an idea of how far along I am. Well, to all of our surprise, my levels were at 870. That puts me at around a little over 4 weeks...They were a little shocked that I got a positive test so early. So they gave me a due date around the first week of March. I have to go in on Friday again to check my levels again and then we will schedule an appointment.

We wanted our babies around 18 months apart so I guess 14 will work...haha The only thing that is breaking my heart is I may have to stop breastfeeding sooner than I had planned but we'll just go with the flow and see what happens.

Re: BFP update

  • Congratulations.  I'm a little jealous!  I go back and forth between wanting #2 right now and wanting to wait, lol.  

    Regarding BF'ing, you really don't have to stop.  A lot of women tandem nurse to keep their toddlers nursing as long as they need/want to.  Even if you wean her before the next baby arrives, she may see you nursing and want to try again.  I'm planning to nurse LO as long as he's wants even if I do get pg again sooner rather than later.

    Again, congrats.  What a blessing! 

    Happily Mrs. C
